OBSERVER?Staff?Report

FORESTVILLE – Jake Nosbisch tossed a complete game one-hitter Friday as Forestville (3-9, 3-3) eased past Franklinville, 10-2, in CCAA Division 3 baseball action.

“He kept them off-balanced,” Forestville coach Jack Frost said. “He had his off-speed stuff working. He threw strikes and he could throw his curveball for a strike and that was a big advantage for him.”

Nosbisch struck out 11 and walked four in helping the Hornets to their third league win of the season. He added three hits and an RBI at the plate to help his own cause.

Also for Forestville, Adam Pleva went 2 for 4 with an RBI while Cody Jackson had a pair of RBIs, including a run-scoring single. Buck Smith chipped in three RBIs, including a two-run triple in the second.

For Franklinville, Will Bays had the lone hit while Christian Bigham suffered the loss, allowing 10 runs on 11 hits while striking out five and walking four.

“We’ve been more patient,” Frost said. “We don’t have a lot of power, but the last couple of games we’ve been fortunate to string a couple of hits together.”

Pine Valley 12,

Panama 10

SOUTH DAYTON – The Pine Valley Panthers (5-3, 7-4) used an 11-run fourth inning to get back into the win column with a 12-10 victory over Panama (2-5, 3-7) on Friday in CCAA Division 3 high school baseball.

Tyler Swanson RBI single, Talen Snyder, Josh Kilburn RBI single and Spencer Sticek each had an RBI single in the fourth inning. Winfred Nelson highlighted the frame with a three-run single and Tyler Swanson added an RBI double to cap off the decisive inning.

After a 14-2 loss to Westfield on Thursday, a win was just what the Panthers needed.

“To get out of a game like that with a win is big,” Pine Valley coach Chris Buczek said. “It’s tough to lose a game against Westfield and play the next day. Emotions are drained. It’s nice the fourth inning happened. It shows it can happen and they are capable of it. It’s nice to me to show them they can do this.”

Thomas Raiport finished the day with two hits with a double and two runs scored while Tyler Swanson went 3 for 4 with two RBIs.

Panama was led by Eric Schutt’s 3-for-4 effort with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored. Kyle McIntyre went 2 for 4, reached on an error, doubled and scored two runs in a losing effort.

Clymer 18,

Chautauqua?Lake 3

MAYVILLE – The Clymer Pirates (5-2, 6-3) scored in every inning but one to take down the Chautauqua Lake Thunderbirds (1-5, 1-6), 18-3, Friday in CCAA Division 3 high school baseball.

Clymer scored five runs in the second inning to snap a 2-2 tie and put the game away.

The Thunderbirds committed five errors and gave up 14 walks.

Chautauqua Lake’s offense was led by Ryan Linnecke’s three hits while Kyle Mayer and Avery Webb each had two in a losing effort.

Division 4

Ripley 2, Sherman 1

Ripley 1, Ellicottville 0

SHERMAN – The Ripley Eagles (6-2, 6-3) received a strong pitching performance from Trevor Enterline in defeating the Sherman Wildcats, 2-1, Friday in CCAA Division 4 high school baseball.

Enterline went the distance and only allowed two walks and as many hits while striking out eight.

Devin Pope provided the offense as his RBI double plated Michael Lisek for the game-winning run.

Enterline helped his own cause with an RBI single to score Eric Horstman earlier in the game.

On Thursday, Pope provided the pitching as he fanned 10 and walked just one while scattering just four hits in a 1-0 win over Ellicottville.

At the plate, he went 2 for 4 while Cody Sargent had two doubles.

The team only committed one error in the game.

“They really pulled through,” Ripley coach Brad Rowe said. “Logan missed last year and is getting his strength and accuracy back. He has one of the best curveballs I have seen.”

Brocton 16,

Ellicottville 7

BROCTON – Ahead 1-0 heading into the bottom of the third inning, the Brocton Bulldogs (7-5, 6-2) exploded for seven runs to put their game against the Ellicottville Eagles out of reach en route to a 16-7 win during CCAA Division 4 baseball action.

“Our bench did a good job when I made changes,” Brocton coach Terry Presto said. “The kids came in and put the bat on the ball and got hits and that was a big plus.”

The Bulldogs added three more runs in the bottom of the fourth in cruising to the 16-7 win.

Scot Laurie went 4 for 5 with a pair of RBIs while winning pitcher Daulton Remington (RBI) and Dan Ferguson (two RBIs) each had two hits.

On the mound, Remington worked the first 4-2/3 innings before giving way to Laurie who finished the game for the Bulldogs. The duo allowed just a hit each while combining to strike out 12 and walk 10.

“Both pitchers were having trouble with the mound,” Presto said. “They were having trouble with their footing. (Laurie) was wild high and he’s not usually wild high, but he gutted it out and finished the game.”

Dylan Paprocki and Calum Watt each had a hit and an RBI for the Eagles while Alex Fisher was saddled with the loss after allowing eight runs on three hits while walking five.

Division 2

Salamanca 10, Silver Creek 6

SALAMANCA – The Salamanca Warriors (1-9) benefited from five Silver Creek (3-9) errors to get their first win of the season with a 10-6 decision in CCAA Division 2 high school baseball.

Only four of Salamanca’s runs were earned.

Zach Klisiewicz was Silver Creek’s lone bright spot with two hits and as many RBIs.

Tadd Beattie was the winning pitcher with five hits, two earned runs six walks and 13 strikeouts.

Tyler Martin and Zach Harvey each had two hits and combined for four RBIs in the win.

ECIC Division 3

East Aurora 9,

Lake Shore 0

EAST AURORA – Ian Allen shut down the Lake Shore Eagles (8-1) in ECIC Division 3 baseball action, allowing five hits while striking out 12 and walking two in the Blue Devils’ 9-0 win.

“It’s one of the best pitching performances I’ve seen,” Lake Shore coach Bob Kowal said. “He doesn’t have a lot behind him. They have a lot of young kids and he’s done real well.”

The Eagles’ Christ Conley doubled and was just one of two Lake Shore base runners to reach second base. The other came on a passed ball in the top of the seventh.

“He pitched a real good game,” Kowal added of Allen. “We were a little flat, but I guess that’s going to happen in a 14-game season.”

Conley suffered the loss after allowing five runs (one earned) on six hits while striking out five over four innings of work.

“He wasn’t sharp,” Kowal added of Conley. “But he pitched well enough to not have happened what happened.”
